Advantages of Cold Forming Manufacturing
For over 40 years, Sussex Wire has specialized in the design and manufacture of custom, mini and micro cylindrical, symmetrical high-volume parts with-geometries to complex and precise tolerances. Manufactured by state-of-the-art cold forming, cold heading, roll forming, EDM, OMNI, tapping and finishing technologies.
Cold forming is the application of force with a punch to a metal blank staged in a die. As the name implies, this method of forming is achieved by force alone, forgoing the application of additional heat or cutting and shearing producing up to 70% cost reduction on scrap, high yield rates with tight tolerances, keeping critical and close tolerances in high volumes over time, increased material strength and parts that are 100% net shape.
Sussex Wire custom designs and manufactures to your specifications in a variety of plating and alloy materials for parts that include: Contacts and Leads, Valve Components, Rivets and Eyelets, Pins, Four Slide Stampings, Glass-Ceramic Hermetic Seals, Medical Components and Electronic Components.
The tighter the geometry, the more complex the design, and the more difficult the material, the more valuable our services are.
